Midwest Express Stock Clerks Vote

Midwest Express Airlines has received notification from the National Mediation Board that its stock clerks have voted against representation by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters in an election aimed at unionizing those employees.

“We continue to believe that the ideal relationship between our company and employees is one where individual employees speak for themselves, and we`re proud that our stock clerks recognize the importance of communicating and working directly with management,” said Timothy E. Hoeksema, chairman and chief executive officer.

Midwest Express Airlines features primarily nonstop service to major destinations throughout the United States. Astral Aviation, Inc. - its wholly owned subsidiary - operates Skyway Airlines, The Midwest Express Connection, which offers connections to Midwest Express as well as point-to-point service between select markets. Together, the airlines serve 53 cities.
